Having just introduced their “brand new smoking great material” (Back Beat, Seattle) to North American audiences on a recent tour with Band of Skulls and the Whigs, 22-20s have confirmed another slew of dates that will take them through the June 22 release of their first album for tbd records, Shake/Shiver/Moan.
The dates kick off May 5 at Minneapolis’ 7th Ave and include a handful of dates with Alberta Cross, followed by a full month supporting Cage The Elephant. Barely a week later, the band will make its U.S. TV debut May 13 on Fuel TV’s The Daily Habit.
Secretly touring the UK under the alias of one their new song titles “Bitter Pills,” 22-20s showcased a wealth of radically new material ranging from the uptempo rock of single and digital live EP namesake “Latest Heartbreak” and album title track “Shake/Shiver/Moan” to the classic morning-after bluespop of “Let It Go” and “4th Floor.”
The “Latest Heartbreak” live EP is currently available for free download at http://the22-20s.com/
